750g (3 large) Bramley apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
250g (2 small) Cox’s apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
50g sultanas
50g light muscovado sugar

A little butter, for greasing

(sh)For the cinnamon crumble topping
170g self-raising flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
50g caster sugar
50g light muscovado sugar
130g chilled butter, cubed


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. To make the topping, place the flour in a large bowl with the cinnamon and sugars, mix, then add the butter. Rub the mixture together with your fingers until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
2. Mix the filling ingredients together in a large bowl, then spoon evenly into a lightly buttered, 1.4-litre ovenproof dish. Evenly spoon the crumble topping over the filling.
3. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave for 10 minutes, then serve with a jug of warm custard.

  • For a really crisp crumble topping, cook separately on a baking tray, sprinkling over the filling to serve.
